bierkoning (10163) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2012 june 2012. Bottle @ home. Blonde. Malty, slightly buttery, soft floral aroma and flavor. Bready. Well balanced. Good helles. Original rating: august 2006: Golden color. Strong malty aroma with orange. Malty, doughy flavor with more than touches of soap and orange. Pretty low on hopbitterness, although there is some lingering in the aftertaste. Promising start, mediocre finish. Café Bozner Mittenwald. 6 3 5 2 10 = 2.6

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 16, 2012
It’s golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of malt, straw, grain, and the flavor has a light sweetness and notes of malt, grain, straw, and the finish has a slightly dry bitterness.

pivnizub (8800) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2006
Bottle (with the best regards to joss!) Straw golden coloured, lively carbonation, firm, creamy white head; fruity-grainy nose with a delicate hoppy touch; mild sweet-bitter flavour, rather light bodied; short hoppy-fruity finish. Decent Helles !

JorisPPattyn (7887) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2007
Good, whipped eggwhite head with a yellowish colour over metallic golden beer. Bit of ureum and a lot of sulphur... H²S... Fortunately this proves quite volatile, leaving an equally stunning nose of roasted chicken meat... I can nearly smell the heavy paper bag it came in. Taste gives an, again, sulphur tainted grassy flavour. At least the chicken’s wandered off... It is a peculiar taste. Pale malts present, finish is a bit citrussy. Quite refreshing, despite all remarks, very light body. Well... after some time it seems to revert to a (normal) beer. Still, it remained a bit unsettling.

Quack-Duck (7794) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2009
bottle, bought somewhere in the Hallertau. Clear yellow colour with a large white head. Malty, hoppy in a well-balanced relation. A solid and easy-going Helles.

shrubber85 (7557) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Bottle. Sweet creamy barley malt and light grass hops aroma. Clear golden yellow color with moderate head. Slight sweet light malt and bitter grassy hops flavor. Okay but could use more malt flavor.
